The room was spacious and clean. The beds were comfortable and there were extra pillows and blankets in the room. Breakfast was basic but plentiful. The bar fridge didn't work. Our toilet stopped flushing but we were only staying one night and luckily there was a kettle in the room to manually clear the toilet bowl. There was plenty of...

A fabulous location to view the sights of the Blue Mountains & the 3 sisters. Staff very helpful, even though the hotel is old my room was big, clean, quiet & had a lovely view of distant mountains. The only thing missing was a clock/radio & plug for the basin. Would stay there again.

We arrived late and left early, so we didn't need much of a room. It served its purpose for us. It is close to Echo Point. You can walk from here to it if you want to. The guy at check in was super nice and willing to help with any plans you need to make. The room is a...

The location of this place is unbeatable! Great helpful staff, very informative. As in other reviews rooms may need some tlc, but the price represents great value. I have stayed in worse places and payed more for them. Beds were comfortable, sheets clean, bathroom clean and functional. Over all great stay. Would stay here again!

A great big thank you to all of the wonderful staff at the Echo Point Discovery Motel. The two receptionists who dealt with our queries about the Blue Mountains were so helpful. The rooms were clean and tidy. Towels, toiletries, tea and coffee all provided in the room. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were equipped with a microwave,...

Stayed here for one night, and this place was exactly what we were after. Very competitive price and great location, just a few minutes walk from Echo Point. Furnishings and decor are rather worn and dated, but the rooms were clean and a good size. We were on the first floor, accessed by a short flight of stairs next to...

Buffet breakfast is usually $7.00ea /per person and wifi $5.00 for...

Stayed here for 2 nights with friend's. It sure is a very outdated place, but it kind of goes with the rest of the town, and is actually quite funny to see the old furniture and radio! It could do with a much better clean though - caterpillar's and dust were not really a good greeting. Had all we needed...
